Wed. Word - Mar. 22

We see in Jesus that the closer we are to God,

the less we want to throw stones at other people.

-- Shane Claiborne


Our journey through The Desert of Compassion continues into week five this Sunday. In the Sermon on the Plain (Luke 6:27-38), Jesus tells his followers to love others, expecting nothing in return. In fact, love others, including those who have wronged you. He says, “Don’t judge, and you won’t be judged. Don’t condemn, and you won’t be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.”


This is perhaps the hardest part of the Christian journey. It raises several questions: Is it possible to acknowledge pain and tend to relational injury while wishing only good for the other person? By grace, it is possible because that is the very nature of God’s love toward us. When we walk in that love, we recognize God’s grace toward us. And when we receive that grace, we are freed from condemning both ourselves and others – and the healing we receive is more than we can contain.


See you on Sunday,
